Description

From magnum. Very concentrated. Very convincing. Solid lead-pencil character yet refined too. Long-term stuff with a notably dry finish. Mineral, dense and layered. Fabulously nuanced and persistent. Jancis Robinson (Mar 2012)

Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate. A brilliant offering, which should be drinkable much earlier than the blockbuster 2000, the 2001 Latour boasts an inky/ruby/purple color to the rim as well as a glorious bouquet of black currants, crushed stones, vanilla, and hints of truffles and oak. A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance primarily Merlot with a touch of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it reveals a sweetness on the palate that is atypical for such a young Latour. The beautiful integration of tannin, acidity, and wood is stunning. The wine flows across the palate with fabulous texture, purity, and presence. This luscious, full-bodied Latour was surprisingly open-knit on the three occasions I tasted it from bottle. However, do not mistake its aging ability as this 2001, despite its precociousness, will last 20-25 years. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025.

 

Lying at LCB. Purchased en primeur through Corney & Barrow and recently removed from an immaculate climate controlled London cellar.
